CARE Educational Ambassadors are Purdue student leaders who are passionate about creating a safer campus culture by facilitating interpersonal violence prevention programming to the Purdue community. Students of all identities are needed to lead our programs.

CARE is looking for Purdue students who are passionate and interested in leading prevention and awareness programming related to sexual violence, relationship violence, and stalking. This volunteer leadership position will provide opportunities for students to gain experience in program facilitation to diverse audiences, leading campus-wide awareness events, and social media and marketing. While experience in interpersonal violence prevention and awareness programming is helpful, no experience is required.
